Benchmark on fair use policies for mobile broadband in Europe (Updated May 19)


Cullen International’s updated benchmark shows that an increasing number of European operators offer unlimited data plans. This is the case in five of the eight countries studied: France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK.

The full benchmark has been published in the scope of our Consumer Protection service and shows for mobile broadband on a smartphone:

  • the highest monthly usage limit offered in each country;
  • what happens when the limit is reached (speed reduction, extra charge etc.);
  • how end users are informed when they are nearing the limit; and
  • whether tethering is allowed by operators.
